We popped in after a concert, tired and hungry for a light meal. The staff were as warm and welcoming as ever, and totally flexible the needs of our light appetities. We had great conversations with the staff, including the owner and look forward to many more visits ...and we didn't suffer deli-belly after! One of the few Indian restaurants... More

Well where do I start ??? I guess at the beginning on arrival we were greeted by wonderfully friendly staff and seated around an open fire where you choose and have your drinks served to you. We were then shown professionally to our table with the waiter bringing your drinks through on a tray. The spice lounge is a lovely... More

SPICE LOUNGE The Spice Lounge is a traditional India Restaurant, located some 4 miles from the nearest town (Blackburn or Great Harwood) after following a winding hill climb to get there. On winter nights it must be a nightmare to travel there by road, if the Council Gritting team have not been around! I understand there are no public transport... More

First time visit to this India due to our other closing down. The staff were friendly and the food was lovely. The staff helped to explain what was vegan and what wasn't and why. When I arrived at about 9pm on Friday night the venue was big but very quiet I would highly recommend this Indian.

Lovely place with a nice setting and fast service. Staff are very friendly and attentive. The food however is average, the lamb kormas appearanxe was not how it should be plus it was a little tough. The food is overpriced which would be ok if it was worth the money or if the portions sizes were decent. I wont be... More

Friendly knowledgable staff coupled with excellent food...do I really need to say more? We had chicken tandoori which comes with a bhunna curry sauce. Beautiful taste & no upset tummies! Certainly not an excessive amount of fat or ghee!

Recently enjoyed a delicious evening meal. All three generations were very happy with the food and service. Lovely atmosphere and surroundings. On a clear day you can just see Blackpool Tower in the distance. Will certainly returb
